The course was great - the only thing I would say is that I wish David has prepared the point locations for the course ahead of time. It took up a lot of time to draw and label - time I felt could have been better used with an additional case study or other content. Also - as a new student to auricular medicine, I found the introduction to the medicine very useful...I can see if someone was more familiar, this would have been a lot of time spent on intro material. ~ Shawna

The presenter was clearly knowledgeable about the material.

Very informative and enjoyable course. ~ Norma
